Customers can pay bills or fund accounts in the InComm Payments VanillaDirect network, which includes more than 15,000 billers and account providers across a variety of sectors, such as utility, telecommunication, tolling, banking, rental companies and insurance providers. 

The services are available at all 4,700 Walmart locations at customer service desks or Walmart Money Centers. Customers scan a barcode tied to their account, via a paper copy or digitally on mobile devices, to complete their payment with cash. Funds are then transferred electronically through a single consolidated settlement.

“This solution is another important milestone in our longstanding relationship with Walmart and our pursuit to provide their customers with leading-edge products and services," Stefan Happ, president of InComm Payments, said in a statement. “VanillaDirect is an excellent addition to Walmart’s payment options that provides their cash-centric customer with a new, convenient and easy-to-use method for paying bills and funding the accounts that support their everyday lives.”
